Tycho is the stage name of Scott Hansen, a rising star out of San Francisco whose sound craft centers in the electronic/ambient music genre. Though his music is sufficiently unique enough to defy simple classification, his sound calls to mind the artists of chill wave style, notably Toro y Moi. But where Toro seeks to infuse structure into his sound, Tycho seeks to deconstruct. Listening to the floating melodies interspersed with keyboard bleeps and rustles, it's hard not to think of a glass of water whose walls have disappeared, and the bounty of liquid drifts into the cosmos.
